Well, I can't deny it anymore our little baby girl is one! Well she has been one for almost a week now, but this is the first chance I have had to get on the computer and write about it!
Between Christmas and now Millie has really changed. She looks so much more grown up, she actually looks her age. I think that has helped me, because I was getting really upset that my baby was growing up to quickly. Now that she looks her age I am happy to embrace the number 1!!!
When we got home I started cooking a few little buffet bits with Chester. He had decided that because the Grandparents and Aunties/Uncle were all coming down after work that he would be in charge of food and the Disco! So really the buffet was Chester's idea. I was happy to let him do this though because it made him feel like he was really helping out (which he was, in his own way)
When everyone had gone and the house was a little quieter, Craig and I had a chat with Chester about the day. He said well Mum I think everyone loved my buffet and music. I agreed and then we thanked him for doing those things and for being a great big brother to Millie. We gave him a little pressie for helping us. The look on his face was priceless, he was so proud!
You can only imagine the mess the front room was in by the end of the day and it has taken me nearly a week to get it back to what we are going to have to assume is the new tidy. But I am more than happy with that for now, as I know how quickly the younger years pass by.
